Stagger - Fox leaves so early, it actually IS mid-week.

What have you all found regarding success fishing in the mornings vs fishing from afternoons to dusk, on the small wild trout freestoners?

TB - I've had success both times but I prefer early because I'm generally assured not to be fishing behind someone.

H-A - you say that like it's a bad thing.

There are many small streams that are not thick with brush, so the casting is much easier. Fish one of those streams instead, and you'll find it much more enjoyable.


Few times I've gone small stream fishing they have had thick brush. Where does one find these less "thick with brush" small streams?


On state forests and gamelands and other public lands.

There is a whole range of brushiness, from being fairly easy to fish for someone experienced, to being very nearly impossible, even for the experienced, just choked with brush.

Kistler Run is extreme. It's an alder swamp stream, and it's a mess. If you just explore around on public lands, there is a huge mileage of streams that are far more open than Kistler. Just about all the freestoners you hear people talking about on here are less thick with brush than Kistler.

Go fishing with Foxgap, or anyone else in your area who makes the offer. They'll show you some streams that are possible to fish, and how to go about it.

Lol ... no shinola. Last weekend I thought I got up and got there early only to find him (and a few others) were there for a while. Are foxes nocturnal?

No, but if they don't get enough beauty sleep, their fur falls off - sometimes on their tails, sometimes on their heads.

On more popular streams, I often get there early for the same reason as stated, to make sure you are 1st! Other streams you can pretty much expect that noone else is there.

But as for when the fishing is best, depends on time of year. Through May and June, the fishing doesn't really pick up till late morning. Convenient, too, as you can often sneak an outing on a larger stream in the morning, then go to the small waters for the daytime, then back to a large stream for the evening, hitting all of the above when they are at their best.

By July-August, anytime is good on a small stream.
